Alec Callendar is a small-town solicitor at Semple, Callendar and Henry with big-time dreams. His suburban legal practice is a far cry from the life of his hero, Perry Mason, with whom he has frequent imaginery conversations. Romance has changed Alec's life and when Zoe's divorce is finalised she asks Alec to move in with her. Alec's son and daughter, however, aren't thrilled with the news. The age gap still plays a large part in their relationship.
